Simple On-the-Road Summer

It's Christina's birthday.
She likes things simple.
So in honor of this fabulous day,
a list of simples.

I'm on the road, so a list of summer on-the road-simples.

popsicles
toes in the water
toes out of the water
flip flops
beach reads
gasoline credit cards
kitty-kat self feeders
cups of ice
someone else driving
changing your mind
and
taking that other road.

Stop by.
She is having a party today.
Tell her your simples.
And always, always,
take that other road.

  1. I do and I will and even though it is usually more bumpy than the well-traveled one, it is always worth the ride.

  10. Mmmmm...that photo makes my mouth water & my tongue remember being blue like summer skies.
    I triple vote for someone else driving, then feet on the dashboard & head moving like a metronome as the Texas landscape sweeps by each side.
    Enjoy!!!
